In 1973 Mary Wings made history by releasing Come Out Comix, the first lesbian underground comic book. Wings created the comic in reaction to a lesbian story by Trina Robbins in Wimmen's Comix #1. Wings later released 'Dyke Shorts' and 'Are Your Highs Getting You Down?' Wings then left the comics scene. She has written a number of lesbian detective novels, including 'She Came to the Castro', 'She Came by the Book', 'She Came in a Flash', and 'Divine Victim'.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over
12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
